LANAP is the only FDA-approved laser gum treatment proven to regenerate bone and gum tissue that is lost/damaged from gum disease. The LANAP™ technique is the most effective procedure to eliminate ineffective bacteria causing damage to your gums and the bone that holds your teeth in place. It allows the regrowth of damaged tissue with minimal discomfort. Patients who have had traditional gum surgery require extensive pain medications and time off of work to recover. Patients after LANAP™ treatment may require over-the-counter medications to regulate discomfort and can return to work the next day! Dr. Zeitlin also uses wholistic products such as StellaLife and DentaMedica to ensure a better, faster, less painful recovery for our patients.
Most gum surgery is often only recommended as a second phase of therapy after traditional scaling/root planning. LANAP™ is a single treatment best suited to eliminate bacterial load and the regrowth of damaged tissues in one step! LANAP™ also helps you to avoid the negative outcomes of root exposure due to gum recession associated with the traditional treatment of early to moderate gum disease. After scaling and root planning the gums shrink down exposing roots. Teeth with exposed roots are over 200% more likely to get decay, trap food, and need to be pulled during the patient’s lifetime.
LANAP™ means fewer visits and less discomfort to get your gums healthy and improve your ability to keep your teeth for the rest of your life rather than slowly lose them to gum disease!
LANAP™ is the most effective treatment for all stages of gum disease once the bone that holds your teeth in place has been damaged.
The use of LANAP™ has helped save many people’s teeth where in the past, the traditional techniques to manage gum disease would have led to pulling teeth! The same holds for implants that have become infected with gum disease! Using LAPIP (a version of LANAP™ shown to work around Implants) saves a failing implant rather than going through the very costly process of removing an implant and hoping for the replacement!
If you have been told that you can’t stop the effects of your gum disease and should have all of your teeth pulled, or have a dental implant that is infected and should be pulled please call us for a second opinion!
